NO. 7-2 AIREDALE PRINT TITLED "SPIRIT OF THE DALE"
8” x 11”
Signed and numbered : 3/25
Artist: Sandra Merwin
Donor: Barbara Fruchtman



Sandra Merwin is known for her dramatic motion and bold confident paint strokes that convey movement, spirit and energy. Kinetic energy springs from her paintings as she uses line, color, texture and light to translate motion and the feeling of fluidity in a style that is uniquely her own. The common theme running through Sandra's art is nature, wildlife and animals. As third generation Montanan, She grew up being surrounded by animals and the big skies of Montana. From the Pronghorn Antelope and Angus cattle that grazed in nearby fields to the Tennessee Walker she rode, Sandra experienced the movement and essence of these animals. Now, as an artist she takes her love of the land and animals and puts it on canvas. She creates paintings that are fresh and expressive. She usually creates alla prima without an under drawing of any sort. This direct painting method creates an emotional spontaneity that can't be duplicated.

Her paintings have graced the covers of six magazines. She has won numerous awards and was featured artist at two galleries. Sandra's painting "Trifecta" is in the permanent collection of the Billings Clinic and hangs in the lobby of the Billings Cancer Center. Her painting of "Jag" belongs to the Governor of Montana.
